moving house again!

Well, looks like I'm going to be moving house again in March. Moving in with Sue, which should be fun. Going to be living in a house again too-- I've been liviing in flats for 3.5 years now, nice to change back again :)

Anyway, we may be asking for volunteers to move furniture etc. around near the weekend of March 8/9. We need to move two settees, a sofa/bed, a bunk bed, desk, wardrobe, shelving and contents from Sue's flat (on the top floor) in East London over to Reading. And then move my bed, shelves, sofa/bed, PC desk and stuff from Reading (Coley) to Reading (Caversham). Volunteers would be fed, fee'd (alcoholics' exchange rate) and ferried where possible (I'm thinking a thank-bog-that's-over meal at Chilli's in Reading on Sunday night, and I'm not going to be in a state to drive people home after that :)). Being able and willing to drive a car or van a bonus.

Also, I've replaced my old coffee machine with a younger streamlined model, so if anyone hasn't got a filter coffee machine and wants one and lives fairly near, yell out. I'll clean it up before giving it away, but I haven't used to espresso side for years, no guarantees of it being steam-tight :|

Well, thank you for the thought then :) Pregnancy is *no* state to be lifting things and going up and down stairs in. Hope it's coming along well.

I may well be up for that, depending on the date.

Our plan is for the two of us to take four days off work, two each side of the weekend 8/9 March. This allows us Thursday and Friday to pack stuff up in our respective places, and for me to grab the van at some point on Friday; then to do all the actual shifting over the weekend, which would be the team effort, leaving us Monday and Tuesday to move things around in the new place, take the van back and wind down. Haven't planned in more detail than that, but it would probably be a case of congregating at Sue's in London on Saturday morning/early afternoon to shift furniture.

Unless you just meant the coffee machine, in which case it's something I bring along to somewhere on a best-effort basis :)

weekend 8/9 March

I don't think I've anything on around then, so i should be OK for it.

Unless you just meant the coffee machine

Coffee? It's the very anal seepage of the devil.
